Welcome to the Mississippi Ethics Commission

Welcome to the Mississippi Ethics Commission. The Commission administers and enforces the Ethics in Government Law, codified as Sections 25-4-1 through 25-4-119, Miss. Code of 1972, and related authorities. The Commission’s three primary roles within the Ethics Law are to:

  • Receive Statements of Economic Interest for filing by public officials and candidates, and make the completed forms available for public inspection.

  • Process sworn complaints and investigate alleged violations of law by public servants.

  • Issue written advisory opinions to public servants regarding the conflict of interest laws.

  • The Ethics Commission also enforces the Open Meetings Act and the Public Records Act. Additionally, the Ethics Commission now has limited jurisdiction over Mississippi's Campaign Finance Law. Details are provided via the links to the left.

    All elected and appointed officials and employees of state, county, district and municipal government in Mississippi come under the authority of the Commission. The Commission and its staff are committed to helping public servants comply with the law and ensuring the highest standards of governmental integrity for the people of Mississippi.

    The next commission meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 7, 2018 at 660 North St., Suite 100-C, Jackson, MS
